Shettima, represented by his Deputy Alhaji Zanna Mustapha, said that the training was aimed at re-orienting youths toward realising their potential.

He said that the trainees were selected from all parts of the state to ensure even spread of the programme.

The statement quoted Etan as commending the state governor, for the steps taken towards re-orienting the youths for sustainable development.

It said the youths should pay much attention to the training package and lectures with a view to changing their mindset for positive development.

`The youths have proved to the world that they are formidable partners in the fight against insurgency.
